    the phone is a motorola i850 - the suspected spyware was downloaded remotely and has the capability of hearing conversations live - without owner of phone knowing it - whether phone on or off - and certain phone numbers can be flagged to alert the "downloader" when the call is placed to either listen live or remotely via computer. The type of spyware is referred to infininity or roving bug - such as is available from flexispy. Very dangerous spyware and is advertised as "sleuth" eavesdropping - a total invasion of privacy.



    Need to know how to detect it or somehow erase it.



    Also, can the motorola 850 be downloaded to a computer to get phone call history.



    Thanks - This question may pose to be your most challenging yet - go for it - and I hope you are successful in obtaining a solution.

Hi,

The only way you can delete the (bug) on your phone, is to go to where the folder is, if it has a folder and delete the folder.

But bugs like are always comes in Virus forms. So it might not go when you delete it.

In other to remove it completely, resetting might remove some of the (bugs) on your phone, But flashing the phone will erase all forms of bugs on the phone.

Flashing a phone will restore back the phone without any sign of BUGS in the phone.

NOTE:When you flash a phone it removes all in stored data on the phone.

Take care.

Hi.


If you are talking about a PDA you can download and install a software like :Zebra VirusCleaner for Windows Mobile, on phones see ESET Mobile or Kaspersky Mobile Security

If this is a malfunctioning phone or a PDA, and you suspect a software issue, the best option is often saving your data, resetting the unit to factory settings, and then reinstalling software if needed.
This won't tell you what virus was active, but it will clean the phone.

Regards.

How to disable spyware - infinity/roving bug type from landline phone AT & T phone service. This spyware is software generated onto the targeted landline phone. Help! my privacy has been invaded...


Spyware is incapable of infecting landlines. You can only have spyware infections on more computer and computer like devices.

PC's, Apple/MAC, some SmartPhones, some advanced video game consoles.

If the servers running the land lines are infected w/ spyware it is AT&T job to keep the servers fully functional but if that is not the case change providers. There is no way to work legal on AT&T's servers w/ out being a direct member of there support staff.

I have a spyware in my aspire 5630-6622 What cant i do for my problem tank


  1. Download Spybot Search and Destroy.
  2. Boot your computer in safe mode (tap F8 during the restart process).
  3. Scan/Remove any spyware that Spybot detects.
If this is still an issue, a simple Google search for "spyware remover" will yield millions of results. Just make sure that you run the spyware remover in safe mode to ensure that it catches spyware that is already running on your system.
